About the Score
When I initially heard the folk song “He’s Gone Away,” I thought it would make a lovely counter-perspective if paired with the ubiquitous “Shenandoah.” The result is a dramatic song that tells the story of two lovers separated, and singing to the same sky. It almost feels like a musical-theatre ballad. I also incorporated “O Waly Waly” in the Bridge, and many of the traditional folk melodies have been modified dramatically in some phrases, resulting in a unique arrangement.
